        eleska book 1 - 5 (alles Erschienene), anbei eleska book 1 in zwei unterschiedlichen Varianten. Zusammen 7 Stoffbilderbücher.

      [New York]: designed and published by Eleska 1941 - [1947]. Am Rücken zusammengenähte Original-Stoffbücher mit je 12 farbigen Serigrafien auf 6 zweiseitig bedruckten Stoffseiten. 8. Äußerst selten vollständig angebotene Sammlung von waschbaren Stoffbilderbüchern der österreichischen Malerin Lene Scheider-Kainer . Komplett vorhanden sind: eleska book 1: "I see" (in 3 Varianten), eleska book 2: "I count", eleska book 3: "i eat", eleska book 4: "I play" und eleska book 5: "papa, mama, baby". Phillips 69.1 u. 69.2. - Bader 237-238. - Seeber-D. 157-158. - Nicht im Deutschen Exilarchiv. Zlata Fuss Phillips konnte für ihre Bibliographie von Kinderbüchern im Exil von 1933 - 1950 keine Exemplare für eleska books 3, 4 und 5 in einer amerikanischen Bibliothek ausfindig machen. Die österreichische Künstlerin Helene Schneider-Kainer siedelte sich 1932 auf der balearischen Insel Ibiza an, wo sie ein Gästehaus für emigrierte Künstler unterhielt. 1937 zog sie weiter nach New York. Unter dem Künstlernamen 'Eleska', der sich aus der englischen Aussprache der ersten Buchstaben ihres Namens 'LSK' ergibt, gab sie dort von ihr selbst entworfene Stoffbilderbücher für kleine Kinder im Alter von bis zu 4 Jahren heraus. Die verschiedenen Ausführungen des ersten Titels "I see" zeigen, dass Lene Schneider-Kainer am Anfang sowohl mit Umfang, als auch mit Format und Qualität experimentierte. So erschien die erste Ausgabe von "I see" noch ohne den Reihentitel "eleska book", jedoch mit 16 anstelle der üblichen 12 Serigrafien, die allerdings in Druckqualität nicht an die späteren Exemplare heranreichen. Vereinzelt leicht fleckig und angeschmutzt, Ränder stellenweise leicht ausgefranst, ein Exemplar von eleska book 1, "I see" mit deutlichen Gebrauchsspuren (ausgewaschen und fleckig), die Rückennaht von eleska book 4, "I play" erneuert. - Insgesamt von guter Erhaltung.

        Coastal Artillery Battery Journal with Real Photo Postcards

      Camp Hulen Tx, Hampton Roads Va, and Louisiana, 1941. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. The journal's binding is sound although slightly cocked and with cracked hinges. Clean pages with legible entries. Cover has some edge wear. 16 Real Photo Postcards of the 211th in Texas and Louisiana accompany the journal. Lt. Howard's journal spans the entire year during which he and his unit, F Battery of the 211th (Massachusetts) Coastal Artillery Regiment (Anti-Aircraft) underwent training at Camp Hulen (a major Coastal Artillery training base) and Hampton Roads, as well as his unit's participation in the famous Louisiana Maneuvers. It concludes with entries regarding the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the 211th's immediate deployment by rail to California where it manned positions defending San Francisco and Oakland. Two months of entries, August and September, describe the Louisiana Maneuvers where over 400,000 soldiers tested emerging doctrine, tactics, organizations, and equipment in preparation to fight the German Army if necessary. Many of Howard's comments reflect the frustrations of a company-level commander in an underfunded peacetime army just beginning to gear up for war, and they focus on facilities, colonels and generals, dressings-down, weapons systems, maintaining discipline, training, epidemics, bureaucracy, mud, and more. At one point he declares, "Boy, if Hitler comes here we will beat him to death with signs and paperwork. We have little else."

        Summer 1914

      New York: Viking Press, 1941. First Thus. Hardcover. Very Good +. Light blue cloth-covered boards are decorated with maroon design and lettering. Boards are quite clean with just a hint of wear at corner tips. Front board has a very slightly darkened area the size of two quarters, and when book is held on an angle in the light there appear to be speckles, as if book was carried in a misting rain that caused tiny spots that removed the sheen. (Not as bad as it sounds! These are scarsely visable.) Spine edge has faded a bit. Previous owner's book plate is on inside of front board. Interior is clean and unmarked. Pages have yellowed a bit. Binding is solid. A sheet, probably from the jacket which is missing, is laid in and describes the book which was "Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature." On copyright page, "This volume comprises the three French volumes entitled L'Ete 1914 (Part VII of Les Thibault) and a fourth volume entitled Epilogue (Part VIII),copyright 1936, 1940 by Librairie Gallimard, Paris." This book is translated by Stuart Gilbert.

        Silver Wings

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Very Good+ in Fair dj. 1941 (c.1930). Reprint. Hardcover. [a good solid clean copy, some light shelfwear and minor bumping at bottom corners; the jacket, unfortunately, is hideously scarred right in the middle of the front panel, with a curving surface-peeled area measuring a little more than 5 inches top-to-bottom and about 1-1/4 inches at its widest point (more or less in the shape of South Vietnam, if that helps to visualize it), plus another dime-size surface scar (probably from a removed price sticker) at upper right-hand corner, just catching the "R" in "SILVER"; there's some additional edgewear and a few small tears, but the big scar really trumps everything else -- honestly, it's enough to make you cry, especially considering the rarity of this particular jacket]. Very scarce collection of World War I aviation stories (all of which, with one exception, were first published in Boys' Life), by this hard-boiled writer, who at the time of its first issue in 1930 was on the threshold of breaking out of the pages of "Black Mask" and other pulps into the realm of hardcover fiction with "Green Ice." Whitfield was an associate (read: drinking buddy) of Dashiell Hammett, and although he was "of the school," his work never did much more than brush up against that of such masters as Hammett and Chandler, quality-wise. Still, his aviation stories, as E.R. Hagemann has noted, "have a verisimilitude about them not always found in the pulps," due to Whitfield's own experiences as a pilot in the war (although by William F. Nolan's account his actual combat exploits were very limited). At one point, he was touted by an enthusiastic pulp magazine editor as "America's foremost writer of aviation fight stories," which might have been both a tad hyperbolic and yet altogether true. (Who would the competition have been, exactly?) The jacket blurb makes this sound like a novel ("a fast-moving story which describes the war crossing of a group of pilots on a transport"), but in fact there are a dozen more-or-less self-contained stories, divided into three sections: Wings of War; Wings of the Mail; Wings of Transport. (One of the most interesting is "The Camera Shoot," dealing with the use of motion-picture cameras (mounted in place of guns) at an aerial combat training school in France.) By the way, the book also features very stylized endpaper illustrations, which I believe are identical to those in the first edition. [Another couple of words about the horrible jacket-scar: it seems to me, due to the patterned design of the jacket illustration, that some talented graphic artist-type (definitely not me!) could Photoshop this jacket and digitally "fill in" the missing parts, thus creating quite a presentable restoration/facsimile. Whether this could be in any way the basis for an actual restoration of the original jacket, I couldn't say.] .

        3rd The King's Own Hussars. Regimental Journal. 1941.

      North Africa: For the Regiment in the field,, 1941. Landscape octavo (165 × 183 mm), wire-stitched in original tape-backed self-wraps, mimeographed title to the front wrap. 113 pages of text, rectos only, approximately 40,000 words. 11 original photographs (various formats between 82 × 83 and 976 × 134 mm) corner mounted. Wraps worn, soiled and spotted, professionally restored and stabilised, text-block toned. Overall a good copy. An unpublished mimeographed typescript, "This Edition is Limited to 12 Copies. This is No. 1 - NOT TO BE PUBLISHED", and all the more valuable as no dedicated history of the regiment's activities in World War II was produced. No other copy traced. Begins with an cursory history of the early months of the war when the 3rd Hussars were in England, including false reports that it was to be sent to Norway or to join the BEF in France. In the event they sailed for the Middle East in August 1940, participating in the campaign in the Libyan Desert in 1941, before transferring to Crete, all of which the "journal" covers in detail. This is very much a "family" record including not only operational records for each Squadron, but also including more personal material - for example a record of children born to officers and men of the regiment 1940-1, a roll of the killed and missing, and a number of poems including an account of The Retreat to Tobruk in Rubai' quatrains - which combine to produce a highly immediate, atmospheric record of events, of greater value and far more engaging than standard regimental histories. The apparently otherwise unpublished photos. include views of the desert terrain, vehicles, and named officers, including a group portrait featuring Roy Farran, later of SAS fame. Farran was attached to the regiment throughout the period covered in this volume, being wounded and captured during the attempt to retake Galatas on Crete, described here. Of desperately fragile construction, and rather service-worn, nevertheless pleasing and genuinely scarce.
